Google opens public domain books to mobiles

Two days ago mobile book reading made another major step forward on its quest to become mainstream when Google announced that 2 million books (US and international) can now be read on your mobile phones as well.

The continued adoption of e-book readers should get another boost by this and also Amazon seems to have plans to open their books for many mobile devices while their new Kindle e-reader is due on Monday.

Meanwhile, if mobile e-books are your thing, a few other nifty apps are available for the iPhone that do a good job: Stanza, eReader or BookShelfLT are all free.
